Watch an Adorable Stop-Motion Short About Giving


Marcel the Shell better watch his back, because he’s got some serious competition in the totally adorable stop motion animation department thanks “To Give a Present,” a charming new short created by Kirsten Lepore for Yo Gabba Gabba‘s Christmas special. If her name sounds a bit familiar, it’s because we featured the CalArts grad student’s work here before; Lepore’s film “Bottle,” which explored the unlikely pen-pal relationship between a snowman and a sandman, was a finalist in last year’s Vimeo Festival in the animation category and recently received the first ever Student Annie Award. Click through now to watch her latest, and be amazed as your heart magically grows three sizes larger.
